What's a good historical battle that makes a well balanced scenario for Hail Caesar? I'm thinking of a battle where both sides have an even chance of winning without having to make major rule changes or troop changes to make it competative.

Arsuf is one of the more balanced battles of the crusader era. Two generals with their full armies looking for a fight.

Hastings is good, but requires a well written mission to get the Saxons off the hill without feeling contrived.

The Saxons at Hastings obeyed Rule #1, "hold the high ground," and lost anyway… So, why would leaving it make the game "more balanced?" Unless your idea of "balance" is that the Normans should win more quickly?
